For the Fifty Shades of Mud: Reynolds 660

For the rougher, rockier terrain and when it gets real sloppy on the course, I’ll race on these Reynolds 66s. For the fifty shades of mud we get here in the Pacific Northwest, they’re setup with Challenge Limus in the front and Griffo in the rear.
Soil liquéfaction inducer
The Swirl Lip Generator on the 66s should induce soil liquefaction with the mud sliding right off the wheel. The deep v shape means short spokes and a very stiff wheel that goes exactly where I point it.
Deep v shape, short spokes, stiff and stable
Bring it on mud
While at Press Camp 12 earlier this year, Paul Lew talked with me about the demands of Cross, disc brakes, and braking surfaces. Also see another interview with Paul about carbon clinchers.
